Joseph stars in the upcoming new movie ‘Don Jon,’ which he wrote and directed, about a guy obsessed with porn. In the movie, he has a bunch of steamy love scenes with his co-star Scarlett Johansson, and he reveals why neither of them actually stripped down.

Even though the latest trailer for Don Jon shows Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson making out in a hallway before having sex, Joseph says there was no reason to try and get more into the part by going actually nude. 

Why Joseph Gordon-Levitt Didn’t Go Nude In ‘Don Jon’

The highly anticipated movie, is about a guy named Don, played by Joseph, who lives in his car. But at the same time, he’s trying to date Barbara, played by Scarlett. But even though the movie is all about sex, he tells don’t think you’re going to be seeing any full frontal scenes.

It would just be distracting. This is not a movie of brutal realism; it’s a comedy and it’s a story. It’s sort of a parable, so there would really be no reason to have any nudity.

Joseph, who is making his directorial debut with this film, explains why he decided to take on such a scandalous subject.

“I thought the idea of a guy, who watches too much pornography,” he says. “And a young woman, who watches too many romantic Hollywood movies, was a hilarious way to ask the question: How do the different kinds of media we consume impact our lives and our love lives?”

The film hits theaters Sept. 27!
